The Use of Different Types of Mesh at Different Sites in the Prevention of Incisional Hernia After Various Abdominal Incision Versus Primary Abdominal Suturing.

Summary: The use of different types of mesh at different sites in prevention of incisional hernia after various abdominal incision versus primary abdominal suturing.

Maestro LIFT-OFF: A Feasibility, Prospective, Single Center, Single-arm Study of the Maestro Surgical Assistance Device in Abdominal Laparoscopic Surgery

Summary: The objective of the study is to provide evidence for the safety and effectiveness of the Maestro Platform for surgical assistance in abdominal laparoscopic surgery.

The Impact of Fascial Defect Closure for Minimally Invasive Parastomal Hernia Repair

Summary: Fascial closure was not originally a routine component of minimally invasive parastomal hernia repairs, but several recent advancements have made fascial closure more common in this context. These include barbed self-locking sutures that aid intracorporeal fascial closure under tension, and wristed instrumentation offered by the robotic platform when available. The investigator aims to characteriz...

Effect of Materials for Subcuticular Suture (Quill® vs. Monocryl®) on Complications After Liver Resection

Summary: This study investigates the effect of materials used in subcuticular suture on patients' outcomes after surgery. The prevention of surgical site wound infection is important to decrease the length of hospital stay and the post-operative risk of incisional hernia, especially in patients undergoing open hepatectomy (surgical removal of the liver). The purpose of this study is to compare the impact o...

Prophylaxis of Surgical Wound Infection in Incisional Hernia Repair With Topical Antibiotics (PROTOP-PAR)

Summary: Surgical site infection (SSI) is the main complication of surgery. The prevention of superficial SSI by topical prophylaxis is controversial. Human studies on wound lavage with topical solutions (saline, antiseptics or antibiotics) are old and do not yield conclusive results. In experimental conditions there is evidence in favor of the efficiency wound lavage with saline and antibiotic solutions. ...

Gastroschisis Outcomes of Delivery (GOOD) Study

Summary: The objective of this study is to investigate the hypothesis that delivery at 35 0/7- 35 6/7 weeks in stable patients with gastroschisis is superior to observation and expectant management with a goal of delivery at 38 0/7 - 38 6/7 weeks. To test this hypothesis, we will complete a randomized, prospective, multi-institutional trial across NAFTNet-affiliated institutions. Patients may be enrolled i...

Robotic Versus Open Ventral Hernia Repair: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Summary: This is a randomized trial comparing open retromuscular ventral hernia repair to robotic retromuscular ventral hernia repair.

The Effect of Preoperative Intravenous Dexamethasone on Postoperative Rebound Pain and Sleep Quality in Patients Receiving Ultrasonography-Guided Ilioinguinal and Iliohypogastric Nerve Block for Inguinal Hernia Repair

Summary: Rebound pain is a newly defined phenomenon, observed within the first 24 hours after the operation. Open inguinal hernia repair is a common surgical procedure that can be associated with pain of the either acute or chronic character. A peripheral nerve block of the ilioinguinal (IIN) and iliohypogastric (IHN) nerves is a relatively well-known method for postoperative pain management. However, rebo...

Prospective, Multi-Center, Open-Label, Randomized, Controlled Trial of Phasix™ Mesh to Prevent Incisional Hernia Subsequent to Open Midline Laparotomy

Summary: This trial is being conducted to evaluate the efficacy of Phasix™ Mesh implantation at the time of midline fascial closure compared to primary suture closure in preventing a subsequent incisional hernia in subjects at risk for incisional hernia after open midline laparotomy surgery.

Physiologic Tension of the Abdominal Wall

Summary: Restoring the physiologic tension of the abdominal wall is a key concept in abdominal wall reconstruction. Yet little is known quantitatively about the normal tension of the abdominal wall. To better understand the ideal tension for abdominal wall reconstruction, the physiologic tension of the abdominal wall needs to be measured. This study aims to measure the tension of the abdominal wall during ...

Comparison of the Efficacy of US-guided M-Tapa Block vs OSTAP for Postoperative Analgesia in Patients After Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair Surgery

Summary: Inguinal hernia repair is the most common of abdominal surgical procedures and is usually performed laparoscopically. Many factors play a role in the pain that develops after surgery and is generally considered to be visceral pain. Phrenic nerve irritation due to CO2 insufflation into the peritoneal cavity, abdominal distention, tissue trauma, sociocultural status, and individual factors are the f...

Addition of Methocarbamol to Postoperative Multimodal Analgesic Regimen: A Prospective, Randomized Pilot Study

Summary: The purpose of this study is to gather information on methocarbamol as a pain management treatment for ventral or inguinal hernia repair.~Methocarbamol has been part of the pain management treatment for both inpatient and outpatient procedures at Prisma Health. This study will compare the outcomes of patients who receive methocarbamol, those who receive the standard opioid pain management treatmen...
